New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Country/Americana music newcomer, Ben Brooks, is excited to announce the release of his debut album, Jean on Jean on October 7, 2019. Written solely by the talented songwriter, the album features nine stand-out tracks produced by Scotty Rollins and recorded at Jays Place located on Music Row in Nashville, TN. Fans can get an exclusive preview of the album with the first single, "California," that premiered on Nashville Noise TODAY! The album will be available for streaming and download on all major platforms as well as physical copies on BenBrooksMusic.com. Tickets are also now on sale for the album release show on October 10th at The Basement in Nashville.

Jean On Jean may be Brooks' first album, but he's been around awhile, playing in bands since he was attending high school in his hometown of Selma, AL. Brooks has a reassuring, weathered voice that lends gravity to his finely etched songs. Just like his tunes, his singing is rich with emotion: these are songs that are lived, not performed. He spoke more about his debut album in interviews with NashVegas, Music Update Central, Talk Nerdy With Us, and his hometown newspaper, The Selma-Times Journal.

Commenting on the new music, Brooks said, "I've been writing these songs and slowly recording this album over the last few years. It took a lot of living to write this album and I'm extremely proud of how it turned out. I would just like my music to make people feel good or feel something long enough to forget about all the negative. I think music has a very positive effect on the human psyche. It always makes me feel better and I want my music to do the same for other people."
Jean on Jean Track List:

1. "Happy Home"
2. "California"
3. "Tearing it Apart"
4. "Picture of Us"
5. "Jack and Freud"
6. "She Won't Fall"
7. "Nothing for me Here"
8. "Angelene"
9. "Wandering Heart"

Ben Brooks is an Alabama singer/songwriter who cuts a distinctive figure on his debut album Jean On Jean, out October 7, 2019. Jean On Jean may be Brooks's first album, but he's been kicking around awhile, playing in bands since he was attending high school in his hometown of Selma, Alabama. His love for music began even earlier, as he absorbed the classic rock his dad played constantly in his pickup truck. Hooked on the sounds of the Allmans, Zeppelin and Tom Petty, Ben got his first guitar when he was 12. He began making noise not much later, playing in a series of bands through his teens, a racket that was temporarily silenced on New Years Day 2003, when he was diagnosed with leukemia.

Brooks beat back the disease, wrapping up chemotherapy in 2005, then finished off his time at Auburn University three years later. Despite his degree, Brooks couldn't resist the call of music, so he headed to Birmingham for a spell, then decided to move to Nashville to take his chances in the Music City.

When they arrive in Nashville, most songwriters wind up bending their wills to fit the needs of the music industry, but not Brooks. What's striking about Jean on Jean is how its songs are imprinted with a distinct personality even when the sounds are familiar. Brooks has a reassuring, weathered voice that lends gravity to his finely etched songs. Just like his tunes, his singing is rich with emotion: these are songs that are lived, not performed.
